This hotel is an older property in Whangarei. But it's restaurants been updated and offers a great selection of food choices. The restaurant is well worth a visit alone. But the room was lacking. The heater was inefficient to heat the room. None of the rooms offer a tub, only showers. And the vanity in the bathroom was small. I was unable to fill the provided kettle, from the vanity. I had to take it to the front desk order Mohave it filled. Clearly the rooms need some updating. Otherwise, a pleasant stay in a convenient, quiet area of Whangarei.

10/10 Exceptional

The room was clean and spacious with a lovely outlook from the top balcony to the bushland opposite. It is handy having the restaurant on the premises. It would be helpful if the advertising stated it was two story because part of our criteria was we wanted single story as we have challenges with climbing stairs - and then we could have requested the bottom floor.

2/10 Poor

The room was not what we booked and bore little resemblance to the description on the website. Lovely dinner. Friendly wait staff.

Executive studio
Dated, no aircon. Had to chase cleaners around for clean towels and toilet paper. Substandard cleaning of room for 5 days stay, not good enough. You cant use covid as an excuse as they werent wearing masks!

6/10 Good

The check in was easy and great service upon our welcome. The rooms are quite outdated and there was an odour (not necessarily a bad thing) that lingered throughout our stay. The door frame of front door and the back glass opening door to the main road doesn’t sit properly aligned to the doors fitted. Lock doesn’t always work as to why there’s chain locks also added? Very convenient location, excellent parking facility. Did not check out pool area during our stay.
